Donald Trump – So Loud

I hate the idea of giving any more energy to the train wreck that is the Donald Trump presidential campaign but look at his chart I must. That he has Leo rising with aggressive Mars, also in fiery Leo, sitting on the first house should be of no surprise. His self-centered, egotistical rants touting his ultimate knowledge of all things governmental are clear evidence of the arrogance given by these placements.

Bernie: An Accurate Birth Chart?

I am being “hounded” by friends and clients to weigh in on the 2016 election.

Farmers returned to the fields for early clearing and women aired the homes from the winter stuffiness. The Celts honored the goddess Brigid, who would later be St. Bridget, the goddess of the light and of farm animals. At this time of year grains were still relatively plentiful. Many of the dishes honoring this day between the winter solstice, the darkest day, and Autumnal Equinox, when the Sun
